As expected, Cinque Terre was beautiful! I was kind of bummed that I didn’t take a swimsuit as I have never been that close to clear, blue and green ocean water! However, it is definitely high season there and tourists were EVERYWHERE!!! I would love to go back during the low season. It also made me even MORE convinced that I need to go spend some time on Ischia, a small island off of the Napoli coast. Maybe next year? Anyway, I do definitely plan on hitting up a beach one weekend while I am staying in Rome, as the only other ocean experience I have had was Washington/Orca Islands, which is a MUCH different kind of ocean experience than sunny days and warm water! =) I am excited to see Siena & San Gimignano this Thursday, but with it being a national holiday here I am unsure what all I will be able to experience. However, something is better than nothing! I am also excited to head to Rome and start work next week, for many reasons, including that I keep thinking about how once I start work there will only be like THREE WEEKS before I see the hubster!! Hope you are all happy and healthy! Arrivederci!
